ACTION

ACTION transforms the way we do citizen science today: from a predominantly scientist-led process to a more participatory, inclusive, citizen-led one, which acknowledges the diversity of the citizen science landscape and the different, evolving challenges citizen science teams must meet as their project develops. By bringing together and considering the needs of multiple stakeholders throughout the entire lifecycle of citizen science, we create methodologies, tools and guidelines that will democratise the scientific process, allowing anyone to design and realise a citizen science project, from the early stages of project ideation to validating and publishing the results and beyond. The ACTION project brings together ten partners from six European countries (Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain and the UK). They represent universities, research institutes, research-led SMEs and one not-for-profit organisation. Together, these partners cover the wide range of interdisciplinary skills and competencies (surrounding pollution, citizen science, participatory design, social innovation, socio-economic studies, open science, social computing, open data and software development) required to effectively co-design, implement and manage citizen science initiatives alongside methodologies, tools and guidance to support and enhance this process.
